Overseas Health Insurance News: Stress 'can be worsened by diet'

Expatriates with overseas health insurance who suffer from panic attacks or anxiety may wish to reconsider their diet.

This is according to Ann Finnemore, stress manager and hypnotherapist at Getting You There, who claimed that alcohol, coffee and sugary or processed foodstuffs can exacerbate this problem and can also worsen sleep.

A healthier diet will ensure that people receive all the nutrients they need and will help them improve sleep patterns, she added.

This "will help make the person more resilient to the physical effects of their stress", Ms Finnemore declared.

However, the expert noted there is a risk that "people who are suffering from panic and anxiety turn to habits" such as smoking and drinking.

She had previously argued that members of the public can mistake their stress for signs of aging, such as poor memory and difficulty concentrating, but asserted that strategies to deal with this emotion can be learnt by individuals of any age.
